Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 10) — President Rodrigo Duterte just received his lowest personal net satisfaction rating, a private pollster said.

In a report released Tuesday, the Social Weather Stations said a survey it conducted from last month showed 65 percent of adult Filipinos were satisfied, 20 percent were dissatisfied, and 15 percent were undecided with the President's performance.

This brought the President's net satisfaction rating to +45, which the SWS still classified as "good."

During the previous survey in March, Duterte earned a +56 rating, classified as "very good."

His current rating is three points lower than his previous lowest rating, which was +48 last September 2017.

The SWS said the 11-point decline from the March survey was due to the 20-point slump in Metro Manila, 18 points in the Visayas, six points in Balance Luzon, and six points in Mindanao.

"The President's net satisfaction rating fell by one grade from 'very good' to 'good' in class D or the masa," the pollster said.

It added, however, Duterte's rating was up in classes A, B, C, and E.

The President's score also dipped in all age groups except among 18-24 year-olds.

The survey was conducted from June 27-30, 2018 among 1,200 adults nationwide, with a ±3 percent margin of error.
